My dad and I had brunch at Roots prior to a hike in Naples. Delicious! I got sweet potato and black bean burger with a side and he got the brunch flat bread. We both enjoyed the atmosphere very much and the food was excellent with great presentation. We recommended

This restaurant is a fun place to be. The small bar can get crowded on the weekend. Live music can be heard on special nights.

As "wine club" members of Inspire Moore Winery right next door, we eat here quite often. Service is casual, and the dining areas are both casual and fun in this converted 1800s house, (Remember those porcelain/enamel tables that your grandma had in her kitchen?

Service was fast. The food was fantastic and extremely good. My fiancé and I both had the Roots burger and it was great. The wine selection is spot on.

We had to wait 10 mins before being seated. I appreciate the fact that some of their ingredients are locally sourced. The atmosphere felt like someone's pintrest page which was a bit of a turn off.

Stopped in for lunch on one of the last nice days of the Fall. Gorgeous weather...perfect day to eat out on the porch.

Cute place but not prepared for the amount of patrons wishing for lunch on a beautiful fall day. Understaffed would be an understatement. We waited an hour for a table. When finally seated there was no wItress in sight. Asked when we might order and they said someone would be right over. After another 15 minutes we gave up and... More
